This movie was a hurriedly made remake. The movie had Rajesh Khanna the superstar as its central character. The movie was a better movie than the political movies made then - Inquilaab and Yeh Desh but suffered may be due to the fact that it had all the negatives of a movie made in a hurry. The dialogues, screenplay were hurriedly written and could have been made better. Bappi Lahiri's music is not jarring. Shabna Azmi puts in a good performance but Shatrughan Sinha screams his way in the movie and looks a misfit. The characters are loose but Rajesh Khanna the Superstar fresh from his success of Avataar tries to hold the ground. A good remake which suffered due to its hurried release. Otherwise a good watch for Rajesh Khanna fans, He has done justice to his role - from a barber to a Chief Minister. This movie shows his class. A true Super Star ACTOR.
